Loss to Armijo costs Rodriguez SJS playoff berth

FAIRFIELD — The Rodriguez High baseball team dropped a 4-1 decision to Armijo at Dave Marshall Field and results elsewhere conspired to keep the Mustangs from qualifying for the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs for the first time since 2006, Wednesday.

Rodriguez (10-14, 8-7) needed a win over the Indians (7-14, 4-11) or a loss by Vintage (14-12, 9-6) to Napa (14-12, 9-6), but the Crushers prevailed 3-2. The Mustangs could’ve finished as high as second with a win and a loss by Vacaville (16-10, 10-5) to Wood (the Bulldogs won 10-3), but wound up fourth in the MEL, one spot shy of a playoff berth.

Rodriguez took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth when Davy Rasmusson drove in Anthony Kaleczyc, but Armijo, which banged out 12 hits, pushed across four runs in the bottom of the fifth and the Mustangs didn’t have an answer against David Hostler, who went the distance for the Indians.

Davis Delorefice had two hits and Richard Lindsay laced a double to lead Rodriguez. No individual Armijo stats were available.

Cory Peacock started for the Mustangs and went 4 2-3 innings, giving up 10 hits and four runs (one earned) while striking out six.

Vanden 11, Fairfield 7: At Vanden, the Vikings (19-5, 12-3) wrapped up the regular season by scoring three runs in the bottom of the first inning and taking command with six runs in the second.

Vanden advances to the SJS Division II playoffs where it will play Metro League champion Kennedy of Sacramento (14-10, 10-2) at American River College, May 15.

Vacaville 10, Wood 3: At Wood, the Bulldogs (16-10, 10-5) scored in each of the first five innings and never trailed in nailing down the outright MEL title.

Tristain Guzman Brandon Bachman, Zach Fowler and Dulon Stevens each went 2 for 3 to lead Vacaville. Stevens, Clayton Caserza and George Lizarraga each drove in two runs.

Lizarraga pitched the most of five Vacaville pitchers, going four innings, allowing four hits and three walks while striking out two.

The Bulldogs are off until May 15 when they take on the Davis-Granite Bay winner at Sacramento City College at 4 p.m.

FAIRFIELD — Kiwi McDaniel went 2 for 4 with a home run and three RBIs, while Bailey Tingley fired a five-hit shutout as the Vanden High softball team blasted Fairfield 16-0 in Solano County Athletic Conference play to close the regular season, Wednesday.

The Vikings (14-7, 11-4 SCAC) took control early in the game, which went five innings, scoring three runs in the first, five in the second and six in the third

Talia Trujillo was 3 for 5 with two doubles, a triple and five RBIs, while Alexis McMahon and Haile Sheppard each had two hits. Lauryn Zabat drove in three runs, while McMahon and Hope Brandner each plated two.

The Vikings are off until they take on Metro League champion McClatchy of Sacramento (17-5, 14-0) in the first round of the SJS Division II playoffs at the Sacramento Softball Complex, May 16.

Vacaville 8, Wood 1: At Wood, the MEL champion Bulldogs (24-0-1, 15-0) wrapped up an undefeated regular season after scoring three runs in the first inning and four in the second.

Rachel Heizer went 3 for 4 with two RBIs, while Izzy Delagarza ripped a home run and Kyle Larsen and Julie DePonte each went 2 for 3 with a double. DePonte had two RBIs, as did Delagarza.

The Falcons (16-8, 10-2 SDL) were led by Andrew Grabowski’s 20 kills. Jeremy Botkin had eight kills, Elliott Donnelly had seven kills and four blocks and Stephen Gloudeman added 40 assists.
